This could be your problem... Your video card does not meet minimum requirements:
3D accelerated card with 128 megabytes (MB) RAM; discrete graphics card with dedicated 256-MB VRAM recommended for higher performance
That is straight from the Worldwide Telescope website. Your card only has 64mb. This type of video card will have trouble with graphic-intensive programs. I notice that your motherboard has a dedicated AGP slot. Perhaps you can upgrade your video system with an Nvidia or ATI AGP graphics card. Preferably a higher-end card with a minimum of 256mb graphics memory.
